This and That Thursday
As you can see I've replaced the Black Box quilt on the wall with "Too Much Chicken" (also known as "the chicken quilt"). It looks really nice. It's a pretty nice quilt if I do say so myself. I made it as a lark and had a lot of fun with it, so I'm really pleased it turned out well. Here's another shot of it.
I've finally had a chance to sit and watch Gerald Roy discuss the exhibit Quilts and Color at the MFA Boston. You can watch it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=De8utOjr-G8. It's about 90 minutes long, but it's full of great stuff. Gerald Roy appraised several of my quilts last year. At the time I didn't know that he was a Very Big Deal in the AQS. We had a lovely chat while he looked at my work and exchanged views on quilts and quilting today. I was delighted to find we agreed on so many issues. He really loved my Nine x Nine quilt.
It was funny, when I was telling my pal Julie about the appraisal experience, she asked who had appraised my quilts, and I told her, she was like "OH MY GOODNESS! HE'S THE BEST APPRAISER in the COUNTRY! How did you get him?" My answer was something on the order of "Um, I dunno. He lives two hours from my house?"
I've managed to get that awful summer cold that's going around, so I'm taking it easy. I'm still working on the Homage to the Square idea. Here's a sneak peek of what's coming.
I'll leave you to figure it out.
